AFFIRMATION OF LOVE
An alternative to the traditional marriage
is a couple living together in a free relationship, sanctioned
by neither the State nor the Church. Such a relationship was once
regarded as "living in sin" by the established church,
and there are still many Christians who will not recognize any
alternative to the traditional marriage blessed by a minister.
We only believe in that which is right for the individual. Each
individual has the privilege and responsibility to determine what
is right for him and her - as long as it does not infringe on
the rights of others.
This is why the Universal Life Church
offers a certificate of Affirmation of Love. This is a contract
that binds two lives together, and the couple agrees to share
one another's life materially, physically or spiritually. This
is a personal commitment between the two, not registered anywhere.
The couple take the vow in the presence of the ULC minister who
signs the certificate as a witness. The certificate is available
for a minimum donation of $3.00.
